Windows 7: Trying to put a little zip in my grandpa computer

I believe they both soak up the same amount of power
The GT just gets all of it's via the board

So unless you have space issues is the only real reason I can see where the GT would be a preference :/

Remember folks I'm not a gamer.
I have plenty of power supply. I have 18 in. in my case for length to play with. A Corsair 600t with drive bays removed. My motherboard does not have PCI 3.0 just PCI 2.0.Express X 16.
But now you got me thinking. Damn it hurts.

Keep posting because I'm going to order something tomorrow.

Ask the guy you deal with about the 970 I posted or the 950 Brian posted

I believe that GT is going to be loud and slow.

I do like the idea of getting the power away from the motherboard.
I have no problem using 6 pin or 8 pin off the power supply. The AX-850 comes with the cables.

The other issue being space if that's not an issue I do not see any reason for the GT
Cuda cores alone will rule not the total memory it has
2gb memory with 1gb cuda core will be as good for the price as one can get

The only thing better is twice the cuda cores and twice the memory
But of course that will cost twice as much

Grabbed this off the link you posted of the card you now have
Quote:
GF104 GPU, 336 CUDA cores, Core clock 725MHz, Shader clock 1350MHz, 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 memory at 3600MHz. 2x DVI-I + mini-HDMI
That is a 256bit card
So all of what has been posted are 128bit cards
The biggest differences are cuda cores and even the GT will not be much of an improvement if any it only has a slight more cuda cores I believe 50 more but 128bit so I don't see any gains with it at all :/

The only gains are in the gtx models

The 950 is closer to the money I want to spend on the old Grandpa computer.
Because I not a gamer I don't think I will notice any difference in the two.
Quiet is good.

Okay I'm talked into a GTX.
Now I'm down to a GTX 950 or a GTX 960.

My budget is shot in the back side. How about this one. Who knows I might become a gamer.

I thought you would like it.
I also think that AddRAM will like it.

Let me guess, you are both gamers. I new with help from you folks it wouldn't take me two week to figure this out. I would of but it would of taken me weeks of homework. I read that thread earlier today and forgot all about it.

Thank you both for the work you put into helping me.

Thank you. I wish it would let me rep both of you.
